Vicky O'Neon joins the Premier family
27 February 2015
Originally from Finland, Vicky is a London based drummer and percussionist who has performed extensively across the UK and Europe with various acts, as well as with acclaimed film composer and music producer Hans Zimmer for his Live Concert Series alongside American singer-songwriter Pharrell Williams and The Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr.
Vicky is also an educator and creator of interactive music workshops, working on programmes in Jamaica, Trinidad and the USA whilst also acting as a charismatic ambassador for young female musicians. She is a co-founder of the award-winning Finnish music project and education programme ‘Rock Donna’ and was the main subject in the documentary ‘Girlpower’ which followed Vicky’s life as a musician.
Collaborating with Premier’s Keith Keough, Vicky designed her Custom Works kit to include neon colours, LED lighting and inlaid artwork - features that reflect her colourful character and zest for her craft.
“I’m very proud to be a part of the famous Premier family and the whole team have been fantastic; welcoming me with open arms. Receiving my custom kit was a dream come true and it reflects my personality perfectly. It will help me take my performances to a new level.”
